BC205 A Sketch and an Announcement

Happy Friday! - Before I get to this weeks Bloggers Challenge I want to thank all of you who left well wishes and said prayers for our little puppy, Cricket. She came through the surgery with flying colors. I talked with the Veterinarian this morning and she told me that Cricket is up and moving about and doesn't even realize her leg is gone. She had very little blood loss during the surgery, has been eating well and the incision is healing nicely. Best news of all is that we get to bring her home this afternoon! I'll keep you updated on her progress but again thank you all for your concern and well wishes.

It's a SKETCH challenge this week. Here is the sketch we were given to work with.

Here is my card:

So you can link up your card as well:


This is my very first card using my new A.Muse Studio products. Yes, I signed up to be a Demo for A.Muse Studio. I'm not sure just yet how that is going to go but I do enjoy their line of stamps and hopefully I'll have an On-Line store soon.

Life has been a bit "crazy" here lately so I haven't had a lot of time to work with getting things off the ground.

Also I just wanted to mention that I am no longer on the AnnaBelle Design Team. Andrea decided to switch DT members to allow new people to come in. I so enjoyed my nearly 2 years there and had a blast being a part of the Design Team.
I hope you'll stop by the AnnaBelle blog
and check out their sketch for this week and welcome the new DT members.

Also if you haven't already entered a chance for my Birthday Blog Candy

you have until 10:00 pm PST today to comment for your chance to win. The winner will be announced on Monday.

Glad Cricket is doing well- will he need a prosthesis? Love your sweet card and the colors are really pretty. The cute blue bird and the bird cage are pretty and the background blue- is that a punch? is really nice too.
